"Racing Rocks!" is a two-hour weekly long-form program that provides rock fans coast-to-coast with news, exclusive insights, interviews and dedicated coverage from the world of NASCAR, primarily the Sprint Cup racing series. The program, which debuted in the Spring of 2003, is available to affiliates in a choice of two different mixes, one for Mainstream Rock stations and one for Classic Rock outlets. In the driver’s seat as the host of both versions of Racing Rocks! is well-known air personality Riki Rachtman, a serious NASCAR fan and highly recognizable rock radio and TV figure. Rachtman emerged on the music scene in the late 80's when he opened his legendary rock-and-roll venue The Cathouse and served for five years as the host for MTV’s notorious "Headbanger’s Ball." Joining Rachtman on the broadcast team each week are Kerri Kasem, the daughter of legendary countdown DJ Casey Kasem, covering entertainment news from Hollywood, as well as Chris McClain, a sports radio veteran reporting from Charlotte, North Carolina and covering the Nationwide series.
